Personal injuries happen when someone is injured by the negligence of another person or business. Negligence happens when someone acts unreasonably, recklessly, or carelessly, causing harm to a person or property. Our firm helps the seriously injured get the compensation they need to put their lives back together.
Personal injuries can also happen in a variety of ways. The results are often catastrophic and life-altering, if not life-ending. A few examples are as follows:
A company releases a dangerous drug without testing it or knows the risks of taking the drug, but fails to include a warning label;
An 18-wheeler driver is distracted by texting and collides with another car;
A developer negligently builds a balcony he or she knows is not stable and it collapses while someone is standing on it;
An 18-wheeler driver runs a stop-sign or stop-light and collides with another vehicle;
A chemical manufacturer who knows their product is linked to cancer decides not to put this on a warning label;
A doctor amputates the wrong limb or removes the wrong organ;
Negligent discharge of a firearm, causing organ damage and paralysis;
